At Cyrenians HMP Addiewell Visitor Centre, we are committed to supporting families affected by imprisonment. Both Cyrenians and the prison recognise the vital importance of maintaining and supporting positive family relationships. We know that children and families can be hugely motivating factors for prisoners and can strongly influence positive behavioural change and improve offender outcomes.
We are seeking a highly committed and experienced worker to join our team working on a part time basis.
You should be able to relate sensitively to the needs of prisoners’ families and be able to build excellent working relationships with prison staff. Be able to provide advice and information on how the prison works and work in a non-judgemental way. You should also be positive, creative and flexible in your approach; and have the ability to demonstrate Cyrenians values of compassion, respect, integrity and innovation in the work that you do.
Cyrenians is a charity working towards a society that truly values and includes all. Our Vision is of an inclusive society in which we all have the opportunities to live valued and fulfilled lives. We work to make that vision a reality through our mission to support people excluded from family, home, work or community on their life journey.
